Prince Henry, Meghan Markle announce wedding date

Prince Henry and his fiance, Meghan Markle, announced on Friday that their wedding will be on Saturday, May 19th, 2018.

They will wed at Windsor Castle's St. George's Chapel. Windsor Castle, west of London, is one of Queen Elizabeth II's main residences. The 15th-century chapel is as historic but more intimate than Westminster Abbey, where Harry's older brother William married Kate Middleton in 2011.

The palace made the announcement on social media.

The Prince and Markle announced their engagement at the end of November.

Harry, who is fifth in line to the throne, and American actress Markle have been dating for about a year and a half.
